Bill Charlap Andrea Canter

On Tuesday, September 8th through Sunday, Sepetember 20th, Bill Charlap's long-standing trio featuring Peter Washington on bass and Kenny Washington on drums will perform at the Village Vanguard. Charlap's influences reflect the seriousness with which he has studied the entire jazz lineage. "I admire the elegance of Tommy Flanagan, the harmonic language and bebop phrasing of Hank Jones, the linear aspects of Lenny Tristano. Then there are Teddy Wilson, Earl Hines, Art Tatum, Jimmy Rowles, Errol Garner, Thelonious Monk, Ellis Larkins, Oscar Peterson, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, Kenny Barron, Roger Kellaway, Bobby Timmons, Wynton Kelly, Red Garland. People usually think of Bill Evans as a harmonist and romantic, but I'm influenced by Bill the bebop player, the rhythm section player he was when he worked for Miles."
